Sun Run in Vancouver. It's a 10k race starting and finishing in downtown Vancouver, and the route runs within a couple hundred metres of my apartment. Over 55 000 people of all ages and ability levels took part in it last year. Final numbers for this year's race aren't available yet - as I type thousands of people are still running through my neighbourhood. I actually ran in it years ago; I came in 19 999th out of about 40 000 runners. (So now you know I am decidedly average!) As soon as I finished the 10 km, my knees said, "Never again!" Now I content myself with lying on the grass near the race's edge and taking photos. This morning I planted myself under a parking sign, figuring people would be avoiding running into the sign, and thus, me!
